Simple HCG Diet Tip – Watching Calories & Making Dressings

I’m on my 14th day of phase 2 of the hCG diet.  This is the first ever time I’ve done any diet, much less a VLCD diet (Very Low Calorie Diet).  I’m learning the do’s and don’t of the hcg diet just about the only way I know how… EXPERIENCE!  Here’s a few thoughts on watching calories and making dressings while on the hcg diet:

So let’s be honest here.  If you’re on the diet or thinking about doing the diet, one thing you have to admit is that the protocol on phase 2 is pretty strict and that the approved foods are pretty slim!  With that being said there’s only so many times you can eat steak, chicken, shrimp or tuna the same way without getting pretty worn out – twice a day mind you!  So what’s the solution?

Getting creative with the food preparation is the answer!  One of the easiest ways I’ve found to give it a bit of variety is to make a zero calorie dressing for my food.  It gives it a great flavor and breaks up the monotony of eating a limited selection of foods over and over again.  It also keeps me motivated and looking forward to the next meal instead of thinking “How can I do this another flippin’ day?”

So next time you want some variety on the hcg diet phase 2, look at making a yummy dressing.

I’m really enjoying my hcg diet journey. I hope tracking it and recording it in video here on my blog posts provide value to you as in some way. Leave me your comments, questions, and feedback. I appreciate your support. It helps keeps me accountable. Remember – get inspired and take action in your own life as well!

    Q: Concerning the shrimp salad and dressing, which looks great by the way, is for the 2nd phase. I am confused about the phases. The material I have says P1 is the 40 days and drop taking, but I thought you referred to taking drops during this time and having to stick with 500 cal.
    Can you please get me straight on this. We just started Day 4.
    Thank-you Gabriel,Sarah

      No, phase 1 is a loading phase and lasts for 3 days… you eat like a pig while loading on the drops.

      Phase 2 is the restricted diet with the drops. You quit the drops right at the end of phase 2.

      Phase 3 is increasing calories back to a more normal state. You start to exercise again so your increased metabolism will continue to burn the calories you intake.

    I am currently on the flippin hcg is there a difference in hcg plans or are they generally all the same? Also I looked online at another reference and it listed several seasonings that are hcg approved but on the flippin hcg they tell you that you can only use Ms. Dash seasoning what do you make of all that?
